H2H Grand Finale

The minutes are counting down until the official end of this year's H2H Challenge.  I've been looking at all of the quilts that are completed for donation over at Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  The number of quilts donated this year is nothing short of amazing and the colors and patterns are dazzling.
In my last post, I showed this Rainbow Rail Fence top I sent to Brenda at Songbird Designs.  Brenda is an accomplished longarm quilter and our joint effort will be donated to the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project.
 A few years ago, Covered In Love, headed by Kat who blogs at Kat & Cat Quilts was one of the charities selected to participate in the H2H Challenge.  After learning about Covered In Love's mission to provide quilts to hospitalized patients, it became my favorite destination to send quilt tops.  The two quilt tops below are in transit to Texas (home of Covered in Love) along with backings and bindings.


After making three tops for the challenge, I finally buckled down and accomplished some actual quilting. Eighteen months ago, I took a class to make a lovely baby quilt.  Since then, I've made attempts to work on the quilt, but could never really motivate myself to finish it. Having Jack's Basket as one of the H2H charities this year provided the motivation.  The pictures are very washed out.  The colors are much prettier in person.




I made a second quilt to donate, but after quilting it, I noticed two of the bunny squares look scorched.  I will wash it and if the brownish look disappears, it will also be sent to Jack's Basket, if not, our new baby granddaughter (we just found out yesterday), will have a Peter Rabbit quilt.

 The back of the quilt is a cozy flannel  print featuring Hunca Munca (a mouse from the Beatrix Potter stories).
Congratulations and thank you to Sarah for motivating so many quilters to use a skill they love to enrich the lives of people who need a little comfort.  Visit Confessions of a Fabric Addict to see the final link up of quilts.  They are really a joy to behold.

  2. Isn't it so heartwarming to see all the H2H quilts? How great that you finished two of your own, including the quilting! They both look great! I can't see the scorching in the photos, but I hope it washes out to your satisfaction :)

  5. Thank you KatieQ. I see you have lapsed in your blogging. I do so for nine months but decided to resume because people are self isolating and we all need human contact. Your quilts are very pretty, especially like the string quilt. Thanks for your nice comment on my project.
